Spring is Here!! Oh, Nevermind

Just when we thought it was warming up, we woke up to this Thursday morning!

These pictures were taken pretty early in the morning when everything was still pretty quiet so the unexpected white blanket was quite beautiful and breath-taking. We also knew it wouldn't last because the sun was already starting to rise and warm the air. But what a beautiful site and the neighborhood kids got to whack each other in the head with snowballs while waiting for their weather delayed ride to school from the bus.

(I can appreciate snow in the middle of April because I had 4 1/2 years of sunshine in Hawaii AND we didn't arrive in Germany until February of this year. I'm sure next April, after freezing, sloshing and bundling through 6 months of cold, April snow showers won't be as appreciated.)
